Higher Education must meet the needs of the 2020 student and that means online, affordable, and success-oriented degrees. Today’s students have more opportunities than any other generation, but they are also facing significant challenges due to the pandemic. So how do they choose their path?
The shrewd students of today want more. They aim to learn tech-savvy skills needed for the jobs of tomorrow, avoid cumbersome school debt, gain success-oriented leadership skills, and find a meaningful fit into today’s tumultuous economic climate.
STONEPILE is an institution of higher education that marries two industries ripe for disruption: Higher Education and Construction. The 1.3 trillion-dollar construction field currently lacks a robust team of leaders to innovate and build for tomorrow. The shortage of skilled leaders in this industry is a national crisis.1 Yet, the field cannot attract enough bright leaders because the students of today understandably expect to go to college, leaving many of the typically technical trades lacking new leadership.
Enter STONEPILE. Now students don’t have to choose between a robust career in the construction industry and pursuing higher education. STONEPILE provides the opportunity for an Associate in Applied Science in Construction, Bachelor of Applied Science in Construction Management, and Masters of Applied Science in Prefabricated, Offsite, and Modular Construction allowing students to gain marketable construction and leadership skills while enjoying the fullness of a 2- or 4-year degree. Online. Affordable. Success-Oriented.
